Ok, I am a local Bozemanite. I grew up around these parts, and I have to tell you Big Sky was always a favorite. Unfortunately, in the past 4 years I have seen lift ticket prices jump from $45 for a full day pass to $80. Call me crazy, but that is just crazy. Locals are what keep this mountain alive. They seem to have forgotten their bread and butter.
Also for being a "world class" ski resort, let me tell you one other observation. THE TERRAIN PARK SUCKS!!!!! How can you consider yourself a world class resort when you can't even support a simple terrain park that is kept up everyday. I m sorry but this mountain can't compare to Whistler, Aspen, or Vail. They still need lots of work to consider this a "world class" resort. And please, remember the locals.
